    One of the things that I loved about collecting 3rd party TF’s was the ease of preordering. FT products are turning into Bandai Valkyries and Metal Build Gundams. Tomorrow starts the waves of preorder madness per retailer. Good luck on securing a copy everyone.

    This is the only G1 headmaster I want hopefully I can secure one with TCP, BBTS, or TD, hopefully their servers don’t crash from everyone F5’ing their sites whenever the preorders go up on each respective site.

    I said I wasn't going to get this when my FansToys pre-orders were mass-cancelled by LBP.

    But I saw there are still pre-orders open for this... so much for plans.

    The Chomp images are clearly from FT which makes the Jazz and Mirage pics stranger. They musta been fan made.

    Or internal mock-ups not meant for actual release that got leaked.

    The only reason I say that is because the image uses for Mirage was significantly clearer than any image we had gotten before.

    Redesigned for the worse too in my opinion. I like the original tail better.

    Me too. It looks like this may have more articulation but I care about a highly articulated alligator tail on Chomp as much as I car about car seats, steering wheels and dashboards on XTB Fuzz. Not a damn bit.
